It’s important to consider the following:
Notarizing a document in jail in Sherman Oaks, CA can be done. However, the process can be a little complicated to understand, depending on the facility where the inmate is detained, it is also more time consuming and costly than that of a regular notarization. There can be a denial of visitation, extended waiting times, and failure to have proper identification when it comes to notarizing in a local jail. The person who is requesting for an inmate to sign the paperwork needs to take into consideration the scenarios and costs that the notary will charge if the circumstances cause an unsuccessful signing, or if they have to wait an extended period. These circumstances are out of the notary’s control and are often not the fault of the jail’s employees.
What happens when you turn to me?
During a jail notarization, I will drive to the facility and request a visit with the inmate. I will present my identification and credentials to the employee who is checking them in and will wait to be approved and escorted up to the visiting room to conduct the signing. The wait can vary based on whether there are any professional visiting rooms available (as there can be other notaries, or lawyers occupying the rooms), whether the guards are available to immediately escort the inmate to the signing, or whether the inmate is currently preoccupied.
The inmate must have a jail wristband or state identification that matches the name on the document. This means that if they have two middle names listed on the document, both of those names must be listed on the identification card or wristband.
The information provided on this page is to ensure that my clients are aware that certain complications can arise, especially during this type of circumstance, and that if any issues do come up, it is because this is not a straightforward situation.
